I know that all of you guys know places throughout the US of trustworthy places where you would take your coach in the event of a repair thats needed, and i'm not sure if there is an existing list, but if not, I think it would be very helpfull for all of you guys to chime in, and I can compile a printable spreadsheet based by state of some of these places, and maybe even make something that is editable and based online so that as you guys come up with more places you can add them.

Let me know your thoughts!

David's coach and truck services
8905 HWY 18 South
Connelly Springs nc 28612

between Morganton and shelby nc
 
828 874 6105 work
828 397 2456 home

one of the best detroit guys around.

When you walk into his shop and can see yourself on the floor. You know he is the kind of guy that will take good care of your bus. He will tell you that the first thing he will do is steam clean it. dirt and mechanics work do not go together.  Also his home phone is meant to be used if you have trouble. He looks after his customers.

I broke my coach in Penn. on sunday called david and he helped me find a repair person. and had a wrecker standing buy if needed to bring me home.

I know this thread is a few months old now, but I would like to add a shop that I had a really nice experience at recently right after buying my Eagle, when the Bennett shifter for the Allison 740 decided to act up.

These folks not only diagnosd and repaired the problem well, but charged me a VERY reasonable price for the work, which I relaly appreciated, as I have been out of work for several months now:

Baton Rouge Detroit Diesel & Allison service 225-275-9683  “Tyler” (for transmission  work) and “Robert” (Overall shop service manager)

They are just a few minutes north of the interstate.

  • MCI 1995 DL3, DD S60, Allison B500.
This is a good start on what I have been talking about. Then all that would have to be added would be star ratings from personal experience.

God bless,
